The Lyrics

(Variation on a theme by Andrew Lloyd Webber (music); & Charles Hart & Richard Stilgoe (lyrics) - "The Music of the Night", From the 'Phantom of the Opera' musical - 1986 ) (Selection From the Hannibal Lecter Musical)
Firelight becons , as darkness approaches
Candles flic-ker lifelessness encroaches
Have I lost my senses? Bereft of all pretenses
{Helpless to resist losing your life ... }
{Hear the beat of the Music Of The Knife. }

In-exor-ably calm gives way to base fright
Fear it , Pa-nic , unable to take flight
You can't get away when Lecter seizes his prey
Can you run away from his cold unfeeling way?
When shackled by the Music Of Knife.

Now Your body will suffer most terrible things
Release the clutch on sensations before
Free your mind , Let your shackled soul take wings
And embrace your everlasting torture!

Coldly, slicing the knife caresses you
Sears you, carves you , chops you up into stew
So the pain begins , when Hannibal's lancet skins
Shredding the final moments of your life
The cadence of the Music Of The Knife.

Your heart will take voyage through my digestive sea
Unencumbered now by the living plane
Let it fly from it's dreary endless rain
Rise again , and come live within me

Frying , roasting , prepare you for dinner
Chewing , tasting , discussing your flavor
Let the dance begin , With the Knife and fork dig in
Sounds of devou-ring of what was your life
Melodies of the Music Of The Knife.

.... ......
.... ......
...... .......

Fly your soul into the afterlife
Play with me the Music Of The Knife.

I don't know where my head was at: 5th text line from the end should start: "Let the Feast begin" ; instead of "Let the dance begin".

Your head was in a cardboard box at a southern California beach.
